Azure File Share backup

Post by arosas » Jun 13, 2019 4:23 pm

Does Veeam have a solution or capability of backing up an Azure file share? We want the backup done in Azure and kept in a separate Azure site\location not backed up on prem.

Hi,

If the file-share is mounted on a linux machine you might want to try VAL's snapshot-less backup.

Thanks!

The Azure File Share is only partially syncd back to an on prem windows server using Azure File Sync, which is why we would want to back it up in Azure.

Tony,

This is one of the items that we are looking into. But we are looking at it from different angles. We are investigating on-prem backup as backup in the cloud. However, there is no white smoke coming out of the chimney :-)

This is something we are also looking for. We have a client that is considering Azure Files & Azure Files Sync, and wants to retain all backups forever. Native Azure Backup does not have the ability to retain backups forever. It has a 10 year maximum.

The upcoming NAS backup feature of Veeam Backup & Replication v10 may be able to assist with this.
